NY Fashion Week: Twinkle by Wenlan Spring / Summer 2010

Twinkle by Wenlan | Spring / Summer Fashion Show Summer 2010

Runway Review Excerpt: Twinkle’s strongest looks were print-less frothy chiffon layered dresses and some surprisingly smart pants that also came in either watercolor florals or scattered digitals. While printed pants aren’t usually the easiest to pull off, here thanks to her subtle prints, they seemed like a very strong, fresh option.

When it first came on the scene Twinkle’s Wenlan Chia was armed with some highly desirable tricks up her sleeve with her strengths being feminine knitwear with a sculptural edge, beaded and baubled necklaces at attainable price points and prints that are so graphic and complex they stand on their own (to me she’s the states version of Eley Kishimoto).

For Spring/Summer 2010 she didn’t veer far from her foundation, focusing less on knitwear and more on dresses and that may not have been such a bad thing if she hadn’t added voluminous baby-doll bubble hem dresses in the mix. Don’t get me wrong, you can never go bad with a baby doll, it’s just that that much volume feels more superfluous than the times call for.

On the other hand, since this was such a frock heavy collection, there were plenty of other more viable options on display from tiered body-con numbers to tunics, Twinkle had lighthearted day-into-night dressing covered.

Her whimsical, dainty graphic prints were done up in a rainbow of subdued colors with the end result being either an abstract digital or scattered watercolor floral print. However, some of her strongest looks were print-less frothy chiffon layered dresses and some surprisingly smart pants that also came in either watercolor florals or scattered digitals. While printed pants aren’t usually the easiest to pull off, here thanks to her subtle prints, they seemed like a very strong, fresh option. – Naveed Hussain
